Tuesdays With Dorie: Chocolate Madeleines sans Fluff Filling January 11, 2011

This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie was chosen by Margo of Effort to Deliciousness.  She picked Dorie’s Chocolate Fluff Filled Madeleine which is located on pages 170-171 in Baking: from My Home to Yours.

This month, since it is a new year, I am trying to get back on board with planning and baking my Tuesdays With Dorie recipes.  I was so close to making this on time, and then it fell through the cracks.  I was initially going to do the recipe as written, but then the idea of having Marshmallow Fluff leftover in the house struck me as a bad idea.   I thought that I could make hot chocolate with fluff on top to get rid of the leftovers, but then I realized my weird aversion to milk.  I want milk, but every time I drink it it make more saliva build up in my mouth which grosses me out.  I have come across this problem with a few things (most notably cold drinks)  since getting pregnant, which is annoying because I want to drink cold stuff so bad.

In the end I left out the filling, which was perfect because the recipe took less time and effort 🙂  The end product was a just a perfectly baked Chocolate Madeleine, soft in the inside with a nice chocolate flavor.  Like eating a small cake, perfect 🙂

    These look great! The filling put such a tiny amount in the cakes it was probably worth it to leave it out. 🙂

    Cute little madeleines! I feel the same way about planning for TWD; even if I make the recipe slightly ahead of time, I almost always end up writing my post at the last minute. Thanks for baking with me!
